The first trailer for 12 Years a Slave was released today and it offers the first look at the footage of Steve McQueen's capturing of Solomon Northup's harrowing true story of living in captivity for twelve years before obtaining his freedom.
McQueen's last two films haven't fared well during Oscar season, but given the cast and the prestigious material, this should be the film that catches the Academy's eye for McQueen.
It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
